Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: S. 1511, the Protecting America's First Responders Act of 2021   [open pdf - 88KB]

This is the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) Cost Estimate as ordered reported by the Senate Committee on the Judiciary on May 13, 2021. From the Document: "S. 1511 would increase the benefit paid to families of public safety officers who die in the line of duty when claims take longer than one year to settle. The bill also would expand eligibility for death benefits from the Public Safety Officer's Benefit (PSOB) program to include, among others, fire police and officer candidates. Death benefits under the PSOB program are classified in the budget as direct spending; CBO estimates that enacting the bill would increase direct spending by $26 million over the 2021-2031 period."
